FractionSlider has now the ability to animate the slide transition.
Just add data-in attribute the a slide-element and give it one of the following values:
fade, none ,slideLeft, slideRight, slideTop, slideBottom, scrollLeft, scrollRight, scrollTop, scrollBottom
or simply set the slideTransition option to one of these values.
With the slideEndAnimation option (set to true or false) you can determine whether elements from the current slide should be animated out before the slide transition starts or not.
If you want a slide to have an background-image or color you can either set the css value
or you use a element inside the slide with the new data-fixed attribute (the element wont be animated and will be visible at the beginning of the slide).
